Lavender

My hands found something new and important. And like all things new and important, I wanted to protect it and keep it away from harm or damage.

I love the color lavender. So I wanted it to be the color that would enclose my treasure. But then I saw a golden case that looked so elegant and cool, and I thought, why not this one instead? It would look good in the eyes of many, it would stand out and people would praise me. It would be a good match for my other treasures, and oh! how it would catch the eye of unknown strangers who would see it.

But I love the color lavender. My heart yearns and reaches out to it. And every time I place the lavender and gold side by side, the gold’s shine is dimmed by my heart’s desire. In the end, I chose to follow my heart.

I choose lavender. Because it pleases me. I choose lavender to be the one I see when I wake up, when I do my work, when I have fun, when I write, and when I go to sleep. I choose lavender to protect my treasured possession. I choose the color that makes me happy, not what would make me look happy. I followed my heart, and I have never regretted a single day since.

Gayonpaman ang mangyari, ang mundo’y patuloy na iikot,
At ang langit ay mananatiling bughaw.

Kung ang aking puso man ay mapuno ng kirot,
At ang lalamunan ay magsumamo’t humiyaw,
Ang orasan ay magpapatuloy,
Ang ating mga dugo ay dadaloy.
Ilang araw mang humagulgol at lumuha sa poot,
Sa isang pangarap na naging masalimuot.

Humayo ka at bumangong taas noo,
Dahil may araw na hindi liliban sa pagsikat.
Mayroong bukas na itutulak ka palayo,
Sa panahong ang iyong lahat ay hindi naging sapat.
